Nate Robinson pushes “Discount Double Check” belt celebration to over top (VIDEO)

Apr 12, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

Maybe I am wrong about this, but I thought this celebration move started with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers putting on a championship belt ala a WWE wrestler. But then he cashed out with State Farm and we pretty much all call it the “Discount Double Check” move now.

Apparently Nate Robinson really wants to make sure he’s getting a good deal on his insurance.

After knocking down a big three in the fourth quarter putting Chicago up 7 in the Bulls win over the Knicks Thursday night, Robinson pushed the “Discount Double Check” belt celebration to over top doing it at least five times, and apparently a couple of times the camera didn’t catch. It instantly became a discussion among the NBA’s twittersphere. I wanted Robinson to hit a game-winning shot just to see how many of these he would do.

Remember Robinson and the Knicks Steve Novak — who uses that move to celebrate big threes — had a little tiff going back-and-forth last season. This probably all stems from that.

Thanks to The Point Forward for the video.

    The move did not start with Rodgers. He ripped it off from Freddie “Fro-hawk” Mitchell. Mitchell actually used to carry around a championship belt during his time with the Eagles.

    Celebration to over top? As if the double-discount-belt isn’t over the top overall. I think Nate was taunting Novak. You’re too sensitive Kurt Helin.

    “Maybe I am wrong about this, but I thought this celebration move started with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers putting on a championship belt ala a WWE wrestler.”

    Freddie Mitchell, former (bust of a) wideout for the Eagles, started it –

    He’s so annoying bits not even funny.

    Philadelphia fans have more reasons to be annoyed than any city’s fans on Earth! Nate Robinson is a small man playing a big man’s game. He plays with intensity and no fear, which his team’s fans love but the opponent’s fans hate. Nate Robinson is a success, unlike every single team in the great city of Philadelphia.

    Signed: fan of the Knicks for over 40 years who doesn’t hate anybody or any team. Hate is for losers.

      So when’s the last time the Knicks won a championship?

        And what does that have to do with his comment?

    this celebration has sucked the moment it got those god-awful commercials. but i’m all for nate showing up steve novak

    Fred-EX aka Freddie Mitchell (Eagles WR) was the 1st I saw do the “belt”.
    Loved him for that, even though I hate the Eagles (Giants fan here)

    Look on YouTube for McNabb run & throw vs Dallas on MNF. You’ll see Fred-Ex do it after the catch.

    one of these days somebody will jump Nate.
    I do love his energy, but he can drive you crazy.

    Knickerbocker fan in Brooklyn.

    Little Big-MAN

    Dude is a flat out BALLER !!!!

    One of the smallest guys in stature, in the league. BUT has more confidence than the tallest guys in the league……….heck, as much confidence as ANYBODY in the league.

    He has solidified the PG position, in the absence of D. Rose.

    His CONSISTENT performance has raised his stock value exponentially.

    With all the mediocre PG talent in the league, regardless of his stature, he will be signed by teams and have consistent work for the foreseeable future.

    Love him or hate his antics….the guy can Play-Ball !

    Ageed ^progress^ Nate is a straight baller. I miss him on the C’s.

  11. eagles512 - Apr 12, 2013 at 12:56 PM

    Who said hate? I said he’s annoying. Although your post sure seems to be from someone with hate.
    I respect he’s a small guy playing a big mans sport. But he goes way overboard with his screaming, taunting, showboating. He should take that energy and apply it to the defensive end of the floor.

    Nate just better be glad Kenyon did not play last night. He was asking for a trip to the hospital at several junctures.

      What irony Martin cant stay outta the trainer’s room but he’s suppose to scare ppl. No one cares about that outside of his family and that wack rapper Trina

    First of all the “discount double check” celebration was made famous by State farm via Aaron Rodgers but the fact is Larry Johnson was doing this a while back so in regards to sports this celebration originated on the basketball world. But its true originality comes from Triple H in professional wrestling. I remember that much.

    Keep it up Nate, your ode to Grandma-ma is appreciated . . oh and you too Novak .. . thanks.

    So, Rodgers didn’t originate the move, but then he got upset when someone else did it after sacking him. He’s a class act (or a horses’s a**)

  15. DonRSD - Apr 12, 2013 at 3:03 PM

    Fred Ex aka Freddie Mitchell

    Shrek n donkey!!! Lmao!!!!

    Robinson was amazing yesterday, the knicks had no answer for him.

  18. urodaddy07 - Apr 13, 2013 at 1:29 AM

    Nate seems to have found a home in Chicago. withe the Knicks and Celtics he was erratic probably because he wasn’t given extended minutes. He is definitely one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the league. great to see him starting finally to play up to his talent level. As far as the celebration goes; can’t see anything over the top about it. Was a big shot.
